I have an easy job for you to do the next time you plan on giving your nails some color…turn the little bottle around and check out the ingredients.  You might be shocked with what you find is lurking in that pretty shade.  Are these scary ingredients listed:

  • Formaldehyde: a known human carcinogen
  • Toluene: has the potential to cause various health problems
  • Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP):  a developmental and reproductive toxin

Rest assured friends there are less toxic options available!  I recently came across Mineral Fusion nail polishes.  They even state on their label that they don’t use the toxic trio listed above.  These are the shades that I selected the other day at the grocery store, Cerulean Rock and Blushing Crystal.  There were so many fun colors to choose from too!
